The 200m freestyle battle before the battle of Budapest is over: James Guy, 1:45.55, Duncan Scott, 1:45.80, Calum Jarvis, locked out of the Olympic squad last year in a trials result that reminded the British swimming ranks that not even those with a world title in their treasury can taken anything for granted, joined by Nick Grainger in the club of first past the post today in the race to defend Great Britain’s 4x200m freestyle world title. The curtain-closing final of six days of fast and often thrilling racing at the British Championships in Sheffield put Max Litchfield and Stephen Milne in the 4x200m queue, too.

At this point, we haven’t the requisite LCM times from the USA to have any real “read” on just where their M200FR stocks lie this year.

Having said that, being the only nation with 2 1.45sec men this year; it is looking patently clear that GBR loom as not only the closest threat but, most probably, the ONLY legitimate threat to the US in this relay. In all honesty, the likes of JAP, RUS, AUS & maybe CHN are scrapping for the minor coin unless either USA or GBR make a hash of things.
